Vandalism and Breakage
Dealing with vandalism or Breakage
Do not rub broken edges against each other to get them to fit, and please don't adhere bits together yourself.
Unintentional or deliberate, sometimes things get broken. Collect up all the pieces carefully and bring them to us. You would be surprised what can be repaired.
Much of the time spent in conservation of broken items involves the removal of well-meant DIY repairs.
Please be careful when dealing with broken glass objects. When dealing with any corroded metal our advice is to see your GP and get a Tetanus shot before handling anything.
